Once again this year, the HRHS Varsity Track team will compete in Austin, Texas during the last weekend of Spring Break (March 28-29). Specifics for travel will be determined at a later date, but we will likely fly out on March 27 and return on March 30.
All Varsity athletes who go on the trip will be able to compete in the South Austin Relays on March 28. The South Austin Relays is a high school meet, and it is a great chance for our athletes to see strong competition in what is typically much warmer weather than we have here at home.
The Texas Relays are on the same weekend at the University of Texas at Austin. This is a national meet for elite high school and college athletes. Athletes must meet qualifying marks to participate in the Texas Relays, and those who do are invited by Texas Relays officials to compete in the meet. Some of our athletes may qualify, but it is unlikely that all will. Those who don't compete will have the opportunity to watch some of the best track and field competitors in the country!
Cost will be $500 per athlete, which includes airfare, ground transportation in Austin, lodging, and most meals.
